GLITZ - Elmore Leonard
Lieutenant Vincent Mora of the Maimi Police gets shot during a robbery which is bad but then-
..his girlfriend takes off for Atlantic City to be a " hostess"; then a not-nice-number called Teddy Magyk, rapist and ex-con, comes looking for the cop who put him away many years ago. Pretty soon Vincent is in Atlantic City, wising up on the gambling and drugs scene, trying to avoid the madman Magyk- looking for the person who pushed his girlfriend off the 18th floor balcony".
This is Elmore Leonard who is is the same class as Chandler and Hammett when its comes to writing crime. He has never written a bad sentence.
Its the holidays and anything of Leonard's is perfect for kicking back and relaxing with on the beach or the couch.
